It’s that time of the year again – Halloween, where Pumpkin Spice Lattes are plentiful and fall foliage is abundant. Every year at this time children dress to replicate their favorite icons, while college-age women have the perfect excuse to wear as little as possible. Once past their early 20s, it may be time for ladies to leave a bit more to the imagination, celebrating the season by choosing a humorous yet age-appropriate costume.

Classic Beauty: Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s

You can’t go wrong impersonating the ultimate uptown girl. A pairing of the signature Holly Golightly black dress, evening gloves, pearl necklace, diamond tiara, and extra-long cigarette holder creates an always classic ensemble. Festive, classy, and fun – this look can attend an ultra-chic costume gala or casual house party. You will not look back in regret as you review Halloween as an Audrey.

Pop Princess: Katy Perry

Be that unforgettable California Girl. Dressing as Katy Perry is a spunky and current pop-culture costume. Rather than donning a pre-packaged Katy costume, opt for a more innovative approach by selecting a colorful wig, fitted dress, and platform heels. Finish the look by accessorizing with an oversized lollipop.

Socialite Superstar: Kim Kardashian

Haven’t you always wondered what it would be like to be Kanye’s girl? Okay, probably not, but dressing as Kim K can be simple, classy fun. The Kim “kostume” is entirely focused on the hair and derriere. Style your hair, or wig, in a center part, throw on body-con dress (possibly adding a pillow or cushion for increased buttock ballast), and a pair of heels. Costume bonus? Convincing your best friends to dress as Kourtney and Khloe, or your frenemy as Beyonce.

Fun: Loofah Lady

Dressing as an oversized loofah will automatically make you a clean hit (pun intended) at any Halloween party. This DIY costume is fairly low-cost and allows one to display that creative side. Ultimate “date costume” idea? Dress your partner as soap with an all-white ensemble.
